It doesn't make sense for shops to be closed on a Sunday. There's so many other days in the week where shopowners can take a day off but why of all days, choose Sunday when most people don't have work? So it seems that I had to learn it the hard way that Peter's of Kensington is shut on a Sunday. Drove all the way there (a good 40 minutes) and greeted by a closed door. Argh!
So Peter's of Kensington aside, the trip out to Kensington was accompanied by a nice lunch on Crown Street. There were a number of places to choose and this the one we picked - Wood & Stone Wood Fired Pizza. Planning to only have a quick bite, the 1 hour parking spots just outside suited us fine (there were a handful of spots for a Sunday afternoon - definitely much better than a Friday or Saturday night!)
Potato Wedges with Sweet Chilli Sauce & Sour Cream. The sprinkling of parsley was actually a nice accompliment - an edible garnish!
A half-half pizza - Kangaroo & Peking Duck. Whoever came up with peking duck pizza, you are a genius! Loved it and wood definitely have it again.
Pizza and wedges was ample to feed two. We each ordered a drink and J contemplated the beers which he thought was really, really cheap. Food came quickly to the table and whilst tables around us started to fill up (despite it being after 2pm), the one waitress had the whole floor under control. When we went to pay, the bill hardly made a dent to our wallets which really impressed me for the quality of the food and the service you get here.
I guess the nice lunch softened the disappointment/frustration that Peter's of Kensington was shut (as that was our next stop). Ah well, I guess I need to go on a Saturday next time!
